The Drapers were crusty little kittens when they arrived, so baths were unavoidable. The bathing part is easy with kittens this small. They are frightened, so they just go limp and don't put up much of a fight. The hard part is getting them dry.
I have a very quiet hair dryer, and even on the lowest setting, the noise is awfully scary to the babes. The second you turn it on, their instinct to flee kicks in, and they use every ounce of strength they have to get away. It's a fight to the finish.
When it's all over and they're fluffy, warm and dry, you can tell they feel much better.
Here's Gordon, fresh from his bath and looking fine.
